About Princess Cruises
One of the best-known names in cruising, Princess Cruises has grown to become the third largest cruise line in the world, renowned for innovative ships, an array of onboard options, and an environment of exceptional customer service.
A History of Innovation: Since the line's beginnings, Princess has frequently paved the way in the cruise industry, evolving to meet the needs of the today's vacationer. In fact, a number of Princess concepts have since been adopted by the entire cruise industry.
Some other Princess innovations over the years include the first wedding chapel hosting modern-day weddings at sea; the unique Times Square-style Movies Under the Stars poolside movie screen; and The Sanctuary, an adults-only oasis that has become exceedingly popular with passengers looking to relax.
A Consummate Host: No matter where Princess ships sail, passengers enjoy warm and gracious service in an atmosphere of comfortable elegance. Princess crew members are dedicated to providing exceptional service to ensure guests can escape the everyday with an unforgettable vacation.
Worldwide Destinations: Princess' more than 150 different itineraries offer travelers the opportunity to literally cover the globe, with sailings to six continents that call at more than 300 ports and destinations around the world.
In particular, having led the way in Gulf of Alaska cruising, Princess maintains a strong presence in the 49th state. Through its Seattle-based Princess Tours division, the company operates a wide variety of spectacular land and sea experiences in the majestic "Land of the Midnight Sun." The largest cruise and tour operator in the state, Princess operates as many as eight cruise ships, five riverside wilderness lodges, a fleet of deluxe motor coaches, and luxury domed rail cars -- which provide easy access to Alaska's interior with the line's unique "Direct to the Wilderness" service.
A Modern Fleet: The most recent additions to the fleet, Regal Princess and Royal Princess, introduced a new generation of ships to the fleet in 2013 and 2014. The ships feature a 50 percent larger atrium which is the social hub of the ship; a dramatic over-water SeaWalk®, a top-deck glass-bottomed walkway extending more than 28 feet beyond the edge of the vessel; plush private poolside cabanas that appear to be floating on the water; a dazzling water and light show; the new Princess Live! television studio; a dedicated pastry shop; more dining options including a special Chef's Table Lumiere, a private space that surrounds diners in a curtain of light; and balconies on all outside staterooms.
